I think the best way to describe today would be Awkward Smile and Head Desk Now.

I got BORED in Design V. We aren’t talking like sort of bored and I was content with the Sudoku. We are talking full on would have been vacantly staring if I wasn’t doing something the entire time. So what did I decide to do? I decided to write.

Basic premise: Arthur Pendragon was born of magic.

Yes, that’s right, I spent both my classes today writing FANFICTION. I would feel ashamed if I didn’t like what I wrote so much. And I really do. Which is rare because I usually have to work up to liking something I write on my own, especially fanfiction because I don’t feel like I have the nuances right, even for the characters of my own creation. This time? I don’t especially care if the nuances are perfect, because that is what rewrites and beta’s and kid sisters are for.

So I wrote. I wrote a lot. I wrote during all of Design V (the front of a piece of engineering paper and half way down the back). Then I wrote another two pages before the end of Design for Manufacturability.
Naturally, when I got back to my dorm, I started to type. And adding, and embellishing. And next thing I knew it was time for another Design V meeting, which I was even less enthused about going to because it disrupted my obsessive rewatching to get the facial expressions and dialogue RIGHT ENOUGH (not even JUST RIGHT).

I returned to my dorm eventually (after a totally awesome conversation with Carrie about how we apparently like the same books/movies/Disney songs). And sat down to type again instead of doing any homework (though I did do some design for manufacturability).

So now… 5000 words. I think I haven’t managed that for a LONG time. Like… I mean it happens during NaNoWriMo, but that is about it.

But I kind of love it. And it’s awesome except for I realize now that this may not have been the best of plans, as setting a 5000 word precedent for over 26 chapters is not a good idea.

I’m not even done… we’re looking at like 6000 words per chapter.

I am kind of in love.
